This is the time of year when friends and family spend time together in the great outdoors and/or their backyards centered around fun summer activities and their desired cooking apparatus.

As happens a few times each year, earlier today I was the guest speaker for the local computer club. Before my presentation, one of the leaders of the computer club was answering some questions from a few of those present, and his answers led to one of the several websites that I visit daily to find the latest deals in software, Ashraf’s ShareWareOnSale.com.
